    Forte III listening fatigue

    Hello ! Great your research on my region πŸ‘πŸ˜œ In Beaucaire there was a huge fair, one of the largest in Europe, from 1217 until the 19th century. There were up to 170 boats per fair on the RhΓ΄ne. https://www.persee.fr/doc/geoca_0035-113x_1953_num_28_4_1380 In Beaucaire there are also Roman remains of Via Domitia and around less than 12 miles away, there are the arenas of Nimes and Arles, an ancient theater in Arles and of course the Pont du Gard. There is also known the medieval castle of Beaucaire and that of Tarascon in front. And then not far from Les Baux de Provence and Arles where Van Gogh painted many paintings. Sorry for this long "off topic", so back to Forte III 😁 I agree, it's better to play the tone controls rather than changing the speakers.

    Are You Strictly Tubes or Solid State?

    No πŸ˜€ I use both, a McIntosh C504 preamp with its fabulous phono section. Then in passive biamping McIntosh MC2125 in the bass for the K33E and then a beautiful Cary SLi50 of the beautiful era, 1996 for mine. I use 5U4G SED Svetlana NOS tubes, then Psvane, and finally EL34 Mullard (JJ 6CA7 on pics). The solid state provides a large and powerful bass and then the tube amp a warm and suave sound for the Klipsch horns. 😜

    Forte III arrived damaged, WWYD

    Yes there is a problem with the pair, especially for the matching veneer with the other speaker. It would have taken 90060 with 90059 or 90058 with 90057 For Klipsch : MATCHED PAIRS Each pair of Heritage Series loudspeakers is grain-matched using wood veneer panels that come from the same timber. Each cabinet is carefully matched so that each speaker in the pair is practically indistinguishable from the other. The speakers move seamlessly together through the factory. Each finished product is inspected and labeled with sequential serial numbers, ensuring that the Heritage series speakers leave the factory as a meticulously crafted set.

    As far as I am concerned, I am in passive bi-amplification. A Mc 2125 in the bottom and the fabulous Cary SLI 50 (version 1 : 2 x 30W in class A) and I am happy like that since 1998.

    In 2016, I had done the same thing by contacting the technical support of their site to ask them about changing the valve rectify on my SLI50. He had fussed that I do a relaunch on the commercial contact of their site after ten days and the technician then quickly answered me.

    Here we use linseed oil for wood, do not put too much and wipe with a soft cloth the rest. To listen to Robert Wyatt on your Klipsch, I recommend this LP from 1974 https://www.discogs.com/fr/Robert-Wyatt-Rock-Bottom/release/388615
